Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim takes part in A Life in the Theatre: An Onstage Conversation May 8 at The Grand Opera House in Wilmington, DE.
At the 8 PM event, Sondheim reflects on his life in the theatre in an onstage conversation with Terrence J. Nolen, producing artistic director of Philadelphia's Arden Theatre Company.
Sondheim, who won Original Score Tony Awards for his work on Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and Passion—not to mention the Tony for Lifetime Acheivement in 2008—was represented last season on Broadway with the critically acclaimed revival of Follies. His Tony-winning Into the Woods was recently seen in a Shakespeare in the Park production at the Delacorte Theater. Passion was recently revived Off-Broadway at Classic Stage Company.
The Grand Opera House is located at 818 N. Market Street in Wilmington, DE. For tickets, call (302) 652-5577 or visit TicketsAtTheGrand.org. For more information, click here.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
